Waterstones Says

The author of former Waterstones Thriller of the Month Part of the Family delves deep into the sinister connections between the deaths of two wealthy women two decades apart in this chillingly addictive page-turner.

Two women are found dead. Both had a secret. Both had a choice.

Artemis leaves the remote Greek island she grew up on to start a shiny new life in 1990s London with her British husband, a successful entrepreneur. Finally, she has escaped the ghosts of her past. Until she is found hanging from the stairs of her beautiful family home.

Two decades later, the apparent suicide of an heiress uncannily mirrors Artemis' mysterious death. And when the ensuing investigation uncovers links to a criminal cartel, National Crime Agency officer Madeleine Farrow begins to pull apart the web of deceit surrounding the two women.

The Second Woman is a deeply unsettling, brilliantly gripping story of a family legacy built upon lies.

Secrets can be suffocating... especially in the wrong hands.

“A twisting and gripping read”

Over the various lockdown periods during the last 12 months or so, I found it quite hard to read thrillers, but I am happy to report that this book has successfully pulled me out of that thriller-reading slump!
